External Storage for Comcast DVR's

OK, guys, you now need to test thoroughly. I've experienced a situation where an external drive was detected and formatted just fine but, when I got to the point where the internal drive was full and it started to record on the external drive, it didn't work worth squat. What I ended up doing in my case was actually replace the DVR's internal drive (it's a Scientific Atlanta/Cisco box in my case) with a larger one. When I booted up it formatted the drive and started to use it - no problem. YMMV.

In my old Cisco they're 3.5", but I now have a new one that may well have a 2.5". However, since the drive in it is much larger (1 TB I think), I haven't felt the need to change the drive (it's one of the newer type that can record up to 8 shows at once).
